ITHACA, N.Y.—The Ithaca Farmers Market will reopen on April 1 at the Pavilion at Steamboat Landing, the market announced this week.

The market will be celebrating its 50th year in 2023, with special events and feature scheduled throughout the spring and summer. That includes IFM merchandise celebrating the anniversary.

In April, the farmers market will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays only, before adding Sunday hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., starting May 7, 2023.

“Ithaca Farmers Market is thrilled to welcome back our loyal customers with a wide variety of products including farm-raised meat, eggs, and dairy; fresh vegetables and fruit; locally-gathered honey and locally-prepared staples like jelly and sauces; bread, pastries, and other baked goods; wine, hard apple cider and mushroom spirits; as well as live plants and the best selection of hot food and art created within 30 miles of Ithaca,” read the announcement.

Eighty local vendors are slated for each market. No word yet on whether the spring will also see the reintroduction of the mid-week market closer to downtown Ithaca. IFM also recently abandoned plans for a new pavilion that would have hosted the market.

“The farmers market organization wouldn’t survive without its community and in this 50th season we look forward to celebrating with you all, hosting fun events and featuring non profits, including our very own Friends of Market,” said Kelly Sauve, the market’s organizational manager. “We think this year will be the best one yet as customers shop the best food, art and groceries within 30 miles while also learning about great community resources and enjoying being together. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you along our beautiful waterfront soon.”
